Due to budget cuts, the IRB office is now staffed by only the part-time administrator. Please plan accordingly for delays in response and approval. Thank you for your patience.
As you develop your project, a consultation with the IRB may be helpful. A simple discussion may lead you to revise your project design for a variety of reasons, such as unanticipated identifiers, unnecessary risks to human subjects, or a resulting change in the IRB review level. If you have questions at any stage in the process, please contact the IRB at email@example.com or 206-296-2585.
*Note: If you are a part-time SU employee during the academic year, consult with the Provost’s Office regarding eligibility for IRB review of your research protocol.
